Here are some websites that you may find useful if you are looking to buy a new knife (or knife related accessories). Some of the knives offered are better than others. I am happy to give you my opinion on any particular knife which you are considering for purchase. If you have any questions about buying knives or related accessories, please contact me. I do not receive any payment from any of these companies, and I am totally independent from all of them. Keep in mind that knives do not come fully sharpened. Make sure to have any new knife properly sharpened before use for the best results.
If you are looking for a high quality cutting board, I particularly recommend The BoardSMITH.
